Hilary Fast - M.A. Psychology Hilary Fast was one of nine students who entered the new Health Psychology program in its first year. She soon learned that a small university doesn t have to compromise in the strength of its programs or its extra-curricular offerings. For Ms. Fast this meant taking advantage of the newly renovated state-of-the-art Trent Community Sport and Recreation Centre to participate in boot camp, yoga, and spin classes. In the fall, she played soccer with the graduate student recreation soccer team in the outdoor Justin Chiu stadium an athletic field on campus featuring both artificial and natural turf. In addition to her course-work and extra-curricular activities, Ms. Fast enjoyed working on campus as a teaching assistant with undergraduate students. I was happy that it was a requirement because it paid for my tuition, which is great. It gave me that financial freedom. But more importantly, I enjoyed the teaching aspect and working with students. I tried to incorporate my own ideas into the seminars that I led and I learned a lot through the experience. 8

10 Doctoral Programs CANADIAN STUDIES Ph.D. trentu.ca/canadianstudiesphd The first of its kind in Canada, the Canadian Studies Ph.D. program is offered jointly by the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies at Trent University, and the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, with six broadly defined areas of concentration: culture, heritage and the arts; environment and place; policy, economy and the state; identities and social movements; feminist, gender and women s studies. CULTURAL STUDIES Ph.D. trentu.ca/culturalstudiesphd Three fields form the basis of this doctoral program: Culture and the Arts; Culture and Technology; and, Culture and Theory. While the first year is devoted to giving students a proper grounding in the core background of Cultural Studies, years two through four focus on the development of a dissertation that interconnects three related intellectual projects. As with all graduate programs at Trent, there s a strong emphasis placed on discussion and interaction among peers and faculty, and Ph.D. candidates are expected to present their work at scholarly conferences and submit at least one paper based on the dissertation projects for publications. ENVIRONMENTAL AND LIFE SCIENCES GRADUATE PROGRAM Ph.D. trentu.ca/els/phd Groundbreaking approaches to environmental scholarly research, both the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in environmental and life sciences offer you the opportunity to work with leading experts in world-class facilities throughout the region, allowing you the chance to work alongside NGOs and government organizations such as the Ministry of Natural Resources in Peterborough. Innovative research and rigorous standards distinguish Trent s reputation and continue to attract major funding agencies to this program. INDIGENOUS STUDIES Ph.D. trentu.ca/indigenousstudiesphd The first of its kind in Canada, Trent s diverse Indigenous Studies Ph.D. program offers faculty with academic credentials and connections to Indigenous communities across the country and around the world.

A working artist, critic and curator with an Honours B.Sc. in Biology from Carleton and an MFA in Visual Arts from York University, Dr. Langill needed a program that would nurture her diverse interests and allow her to pursue meaningful research that connected to her real life art practice. As you can imagine, working in the area of art practice begs an understanding of the triangulated ontology from which the work is derived: art, science and technology. Knowledge of these histories is essential. In order to conduct this research I needed to find a program that would acknowledge the interdependence of these disciplines and provide me with the intellectual support to conduct this research, said Dr. Langill. Within Trent s Canadian Studies department, Dr. Langill found an interdisciplinary spirit that fit with her ambitious research interests. Her committee included members with anthropological, curatorial, and cultural studies backgrounds while the department itself brought an historical focus to her work that challenged her to explore new facets of her research. Bringing new methods and methodologies to my research enriched the work in unanticipated ways, she said. Dr. Langill is currently an associate dean in the Faculty of Art at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) University, and the Interim Chair of the Digital Futures Program. MATERIALS SCIENCE Ph.D. trentu.ca/materialsscience Offered jointly by Trent and the University of Ontario Institute Of Technology (UOIT), this program is designed for science and engineering students who want to develop a capacity for experimental design and promote independent work initiatives. The faculty is comprised of a number of educators and professionals whose academic credentials and deep industry experience are a distinct advantage for students who want to excel in the field of materials research. In addition, students are encouraged to develop connections to the wider community of researchers through conferences, workshops and presentations by visiting scientists who showcase their work. Fast Facts: Named after Trent s founding president, the Symons Seminar Series is a monthly lecture series organized by graduate students, to share their research and ideas with peers across the humanities and social sciences.
